For years data centres have been set up in Eire, but the Irish grid can no longer support them.


This article by Liam Tung, writing for ZDNet, makes the following points.
  • Amazon and Microsoft had planned to invest €2bn in Eire.
  • In Eire data, centres use  14% of all power produced by the Eire grid.
  •  If this was to increase, it could result in rolling blackouts.
  • EirGrid will not approve the expansion of data centres to at least 2028.
